Teenaged Mutant Ninja Corn Plant
So I recieved three corn plants from a coworker about a year ago. Two of them are doing great. They are happy, vibrant and growing without a care in the world.
And then there is the mutant. They all came from the same plant, they all have the same soil, they all are in the same area, nothing is different about any of them and yet this one is weird.
When I got it, there was only one stalk at top. The leaves were curled in all directions; length and width wise. Some were stunted, stubby nubs and others were long and healthy. Then four shoots started to grow. The two in the middle of the stalk turned brown and died yet the one at the base grew quite nicely. Under the the foremost leaf at the bottom of the pic is another sprout starting at the base of the plant.
At the very top of the plant, new leaves are starting to come up, yet about a week ago, two large leaves that were at the bottom of that shoot turned brown and were removed two days ago.
They are all growing in a mix of coir, perlite that had been rinsed and schultz orchid mix, because I couldn't find any pine bark fines.
I couldn't find any bugs on any of them, they get a mix of indirect sun light and a grow light. The roots weren't bound up or choking and nothing was dead or dying. I haven't given them any ferts either.
So.. what's up with this monstrosity? Should I just embrace it's uniqueness and diversity or is there something sinister going on here? Oh and also that's just dust, too.
